  1. You say that but it wouldn't surprise me if NP wanted to keep both Lansbury and Rowe. This is what really worries me most.
  2. First time Wycombe play wide right their No 26 in acres of space with time to pick out a cross. Why does this happen week after week with nothing done to cut out crosses? No other side gives us that kind of space.
  3. This idea seems to be driven mostly by US owners. First they are allowed to take over clubs and basically lump the cost onto the club's debt. Paying for it out of the profits. Now they want a cast iron guarantee that they can generate the money to pay for it. I think the authorities are acting too late here. They should never have allowed the leveraged buyouts of clubs in the first place.
  4. That is how I see it too. The answer is not to take a bigger piece of the pie, only to blow it all on higher salaries and transfer fees. These clubs already receive obscene amounts yet run up big debts. They need to learn how to control costs rather than up their income. Otherwise it solves nothing.
  5. Just to be clear, I would be very happy to see NP given a decent length contract. I see his mate 'H' may be back soon as we have appealed his red card. While wanting NP I am less happy about him playing the likes of Simpson and H. May have to get used to it though I guess. A mix of young and experienced pros does seem sensible but we need experienced players who show some quality on the pitch. Not sure HL has done enough of that to justify a contract.
  6. These clubs wouldn't need to grab more money if they did something to control wages and transfer fees. If they can't make a profit with the money they get from the EPL they probably never will. They have created their own problems and are looking to make everyone else pay for it.
  7. Won't it become less attractive to investors if a super league sucks the money out of the PL? The dream of getting rich through promotion won't be quite the same.
  8. Yeah I can see a lot of legal challenges from the PFA too if they threaten to ban players from any competitions like the World Cup. I don't care about the champions league and haven't watched it since BT got the rights. It seems it will just be a replacement for that, with more money for the elite clubs. Sadly I think it is inevitable that the big boys will eventually do whatever they think brings them most money. Another change accelerated by the pandemic.
  9. Didn't like him referring to Lansbury as 'H'. Sounds too much like he's one of those in with NP. If anything he should be angry with him for a stupid gk impression. Makes me think he might be planning to keep him on for next season. Hoping I'm reading too much into it though.
  10. Thing is I can see this being SL rather than Ashton. It seems a very money related call to reduce the wage bill.
  11. What a ridiculous thing to say. Typical OTT OTIB statement.
  12. Looks like LJ is carrying on his tradition of a collapse when the pressure is on at Sunderland too. Losing again today.
  13. Sorry - are you related to HL? Can't see any possible defence for sticking your hand up. If you save it you're off, if you don't it goes in. I might do it but I'm not a pro player. The only possible good outcome is you save it and the ref doesn't see it. In other words it was a stupid thing to do. Especially for a very experienced player.
  14. OK then - the MAJORITY of posts on here have questioned the value of Lansbury playing. Is that not a reasonable statement?
  15. We all seem to feel the same so why does NP keep playing him. I find this concerning as I want to believe in him. Picking FD and Lansbury is making it difficult.
